Let’s Understand The Details Of Climbing Kilimanjaro Cost US Factors In Below:
Air Flight From New York To Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania - $1,500
As there are simply no direct flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) from any city or state of the US, you either have to take connecting flights or choose to travel by road from Arusha to Kilimanjaro National Park. Arusha and Moshi are two towns close to the mountain and serve separate international airports where American Airlines facilitate their flights.
The flight costs from New York or Chicago are anywhere from $1300 to $1700. Your Kilimanjaro Climb Cost does not include your International Flight Expenses. You can book your flights at least 6 to 9 months before the date of your actual climb. This helps you get the best prices at affordable rates. We also suggest you book directly from the airline's website instead of any third-party source. This is essential to save on your costs and avoid any last-minute delays of flight confirmation.
